    Thanks to an emergency bill passed by the D.C. Council, access to medical marijuana is easier for D.C. residents over the age of 21 and older. A doctor’s recommendation is no longer needed for patients looking to register for a patient card, meaning patients can now self-certify their eligibility for medical marijuana immediately. The emergency bill — introduced by D.C. Council members Mary Cheh and Kenyan McDuffie — passed Tuesday unanimously. More DC News More Local News “These patients are going to places that have marijuana,” Cheh said, stressing that patrons gifted marijuana at unregulated shops, “cannot have confidence about its quality, about its safety.” The bill is an attempt to protect customers and legal marijuana dispensaries from competition at “gifting shops” — businesses that gift marijuana along with the purchase of artwork, clothing or other items. D.C. leaders have called the practice a “gray market” due to the lack of regulation. The bill is also attempts to remove barriers that keep patients from buying medical marijuana at one of the city’s seven dispensaries caused by a limited...
